twitter_block 1.1

[twitter_block:3 align:left username:flashyourweb]


The latest release of our twitter_block plugin for geeklog/glfusion is now available for download.

New/fixed for this release:

  • introduction text when first installed(username missing)
  • relative times (config option)
  • tinyUrls - whew what a pain in the a#@! (config option)
  • twitter profile photo (config option)
  • follow me link at the bottom of the block
  • autotags (thanks for your help Tom)
  • Swedish language translation (thanks Daniel)
  • auto-install works correctly

I've also reworked the header code so we don't include jQuery more than once... and put jQuery into compatibility mode.

The install_defaults and upgrade funtionality has been reworked as well for way way easier addition of new configs

Requested is the ability to tweet from within geeklog... maybe next time.

New autotags



Necessary underscores to separate words automatically removed.


Show an actual twitter_block

[twitter_block:3 align:left username:flashyourweb]

where 3 is the number of tweets, optional username to show your friends tweets and also optional align{left, right or center}

The single line "tweet" to retrieve your latest tweet


[tweet:39 usename:nytimes]

where 39 is the truncation limit and you can specify username to say quote NY Times :)

Or by tweet id for a specific tweet

[tweet:45 username:maximumpc tid:8251183668]
